I'm not a fan of using the macros to begin with and less so anything
more complex than a single constant value. I'd rather see 2 cells here
with the first being the id and the 2nd being the type.

An issue with token pasting is grepping for DB, SM, etc. in kernel tree
is probably noisy. Not such a big deal here, but a major PIA when you
have more complex sets of includes.
